It concluded: “Customers do not need to take any action and can continue using their DJI drones without disruption.”

The rollover week will occur due to how the Global Positioning System (GPS) uses a 10-bit binary system that will reach its limit of 1,024 weeks on April 6 meaning it is in need of being reset to 0.
